head of the class revisited......

This is one of my seedlings of the Minorcan Pequin I posted about previously with a yankee dollar for scale. I put most of my pequin/tepin varieties in at the same time as the chinense varieties as I'd read they can be a bit slower to flower than cultivated annum forms.


That was wrong.

I've taken 12 flowers off this guy so far to try and persuade it to put its energies into getting bigger. It seems likely this will be ridiculously prolific though.
